The Bay of Plenty is a bioregion with unique gifts and challenges. By sharing the powerful design process of permaculture and spreading practical know-how with the people who live here, we hope to add to the resilience and permanent abundance of this beautiful place.
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture was developed in the 1970s by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in response to the overpopulation and environmental destruction happening around them.
In the 40 years since, it has developed into a powerful process which leads to easy to understand, efficient, abundant, economical and nature friendly property design. Permaculture allows us to design resilient environments to any scale – in our own apartments, backyards, lifestyle blocks, farms, businesses and communities.
